AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Argues that Malouf's story collection is an exploration fo the perplexities of individual perception, consciousness, and conscience rather than of other kinds of burdens of social, communal life, suggesting a 'testing stage of imaginative transition through which Malouf is presently working' (752). Dream Stuff 'challenges us most of all to confront a perception that now seems central to Malouf's work, a kind of gentle yet implacable skepticism about the reality of the social world' (757).
